Inviting and expansive spaces reflect the friendship between the U.S. and Jordan at the U.S. Embassy New Office Annex in Amman. Encapsulating the U.S. commitment to diplomacy with the Kingdom of Jordan, the Embassy’s design unites Amman’s cityscape and Jordan’s desert environment. As an expanding regional hub, the city’s progressing economic and political landscape necessitated larger spaces to conduct diplomacy, with a growing number of employees requiring work, community, and support spaces.

The design cultivated cohesive working spaces reminiscent of a Mediterranean village while ensuring robust security, resilience, and stewardship. The exterior’s indigenous Jerusalem stone reflects the existing Chancery building and embraces centuries-old stone carving, while interior walls of the major public space feature basket woven wood that emphasize the region’s Bedouin tradition and creates warm yet functional spaces. These connected designs give texture and scale to the Amman streetscapes while adding to the Embassy’s communal atmosphere.
